The University of 
North Carolina 



Illustrations and General 



I have an ideal for this University. My desire 
would have it a place where there is always a breath 
of freedom in the air; where a sound and various 
learning is taught heartily without sham or pretense; 
where the life and the teachings of Jesus furnish forth 
the ideal of right living and true manhood; where 
manners are gentle, and courtesies daily multi- 
ply between teacher and taught ; where all classes and 
conditions and beliefs are welcome and men may rise, 
in earnest striving by the might of merit; where wealth 
is no prejudice and poverty no shame; where honorable 
labor, even rough labor of the hands, is glorified by 
high purpose and strenuous desire for the clearer air 
and the larger view; where there is a will to serve all 
high ends of a State struggling up out of ignorance 
into general power; where men are trusted to observe 
closely, to imagine vividly, to reason accurately, 
and to have about them some humility and some toler- 
ation; where, finally, Truth, shining patiently like a 
star, bids us advance, and we will not turn aside. — 
Edwin A. Alderman.

The University of North 

The thing that has been of most benefit to me all my life is the fact that I was a student 
at the University of North Carolina. — Senator Vance. 

History The University of North Carolina was ordained 

1789-1902. of the people in the first Constitution of the State, 

SStoSSK."" 1 adopted in 1776, and received the grant of a 
charter from the Legislature in 1789. It is, there- 
fore, the oldest State University in the Southern States, and, in the 
entire Union, second only to the University of Pennsylvania. The 
corner stone of the old East Building was laid in 1793, and the 
University was opened to students in 1795. Since that date the 
progress of the institution has been constant, with the exception of 
a brief interruption at the close of the Civil War, and it has been 
maintained by the people of the State through legislative appropria- 
tions and bequests of lands, buildings, equipment and productive 
funds for the support of instruction and aid to its students. 

The Larger Since the academic year 1899-1900, $125,000 
university nave been expended in improving the material 
increaidcoSfort equipment of the University. Three new buildings 
conventence have been erected. Of these the Carr and Mary 

Ann Smith buildings are dormitories for the ac- 
commodation of students. They are fitted with every modern con- 
venience and safeguard of health. The Alumni Hall is a large 
building, splendidly constructed and reserved for the offices of 
administration and for lecture rooms. The year 1901-02 was 
marked also by the installation of a central heating plant, which 
supplies all of the fourteen buildings on the campus. This system, 
with the electric lights supplied by the same plant, insures comfort 

and safety bo Btudents. Health is also safeguarded by the new 
system of water works and sewerage. Both have been installed in 
all the buildings. The water works supply an abundance of pure, 
filtered water, and the sewers have been most carefully and scien- 
tifically constructed. These improvements make possible a 
thorough system of baths and perfect sanitation. 

Enrollment The attendance for the present year will reach 
The largest in the the large total of more than 600. Of this number 
institution. over 400 are enrolled in the Academic Department. 

In this respect the University of North Carolina 
stands at the head of Southern educational institutions. 

Increase of For the instruction of the large enrollment of 
tlie Acuity ^ e p resen {. year- the University has a faculty of 
New departments 54 members, including 32 of professorial rank. 

and professors; addi- ' ° ^ 

tionai instructors New departments of instruction have been created. 

and assistants; new ^ 

scientific apparatus. These are the Departments of Romanic Languages, 
of Economics and of the English Language. The 
work in the subject last named has been heretofore combined with 
English Literature. The work is now divided between two in- 
structors of full professorial rank. The Departments of Greek and 
Latin have also been entirely separated, and each is now directed 
by an independent professor, assisted by an associate professor, or 
by an instructor. In Chemistry the instruction has been greatly 
broadened by the extension of the work in Organic Chemistry, and 
the addition of courses in Physiological and Physical Chemistry. 
An additional professor has been assigned to the Department of 
History, and a rearrangement of courses has been made. Finally, 
the material equipment of the Department of Pharmacy has been 
doubled and a School of Mining has been organized. 

Extension The University has established a full course in 

0/ the Med- Medicine, leading to the degree of M.D. The 

work of the first two years is conducted at the 
tific r t?afnfng now 1 " sea t of the University as in the past. The re- 
University* e mainder of the course is given at Raleigh, with 

its hospital and clinical facilities. The medical 
students of the State may now obtain the best instruction within 
its borders, and at greatly reduced cost. 

Purposes The purposes of the University, in its relation 

of the , () t | )(V siMic, are manifold. Its service musl firel

be directed bo the educational interests 01 the 

si!!ir , lm. , | , 'V.«'i.'u "in community, and its aim is to offer to the young 

moSST^SS 8 ' "' ,,I1 o f North Carolina and the South, of every 

religious faith, political belief and geographical 

section, opportunities for every type of culture moral, intellectual 
and religious. The University training makes the most of a man 
that he is capable of becoming; develops the intellectual powers, 

broadens the sympathies and interests and gives a wider outlook 
upon life and its activities. In this phase of its work, the Univer- 
sity aims to impart liberal culture, self-reliance, respect for the 
opinions of others and love of truth; to make men broad and force- 
ful, clear in observation and thought and effective in execution. 

A further purpose of the University is to stimulate and elevate 
the educational ideals of the State. Its graduates hold chairs in 
colleges, conduct the secondary schools and, in general, direct the 
educational life of the people. The University also aims to give, 
through its special schools, that professional training which shall 
fit its students for effective work in the various learned professions. 

Finally, the courses of instruction are so designed in breadth of 
treatment and scope of subjects as to supplement the work of 
many schools and colleges in the State, and to offer opportunities 
for advanced study and research to students who seek to increase 
their intellectual equipment by the study of a wider range of sub- 
jects or by specialization in a particular branch.

reverent quiet and all sections, the climatic advantages are many. 
Chapel Hill is situated on an eminence of granite 
with a considerable elevation, and is free from the dampness and 
malarial influences of the coastwise sections. The winters are 
mild, and the air is clear and dry. The mean temperatures for the 
months of the college session since 1820 are: September, 71.3; 
October, 59.6; November, 49.9; December, 42.6; January, 39.8; 
February, 44.3; March, 49; April, 59.2; May, 67.8. The site of the 
University was happily chosen, also, because of its beauty and the 

character of the environmenl afforded to its students. The com- 
munity is quiel and free from distracting influences; its streets are 
wide and heavily shaded, and the hills and forests of tin; neighbor- 
ing sections afford every opportunity for sport, and recreation. 

Chape] Hill is situated on a, branch of the Southern Railway. 
Two daily passenger trains connect at University Junction with 
trains to and from Greensboro and Raleigh. 

The The University library contains forty thousand 

Library bound volumes and twenty thousand pamphlets,

to ail students. several departments of the University. It is open 

to students seven hours daily. Most of the de- 
partments have special libraries of practical working value. The 
reading room is well supplied with magazines, papers and reviews. 
The accessions to the library amount to about two thousand vol- 
umes annually. 

Important improvements in the appearance and usefulness of 
the library have been made during the past two years. The build- 
ing has been repaired and beautified, its capacity increased and 
adequate heating facilities installed. The service is now excellent; 
the selection of books varied and useful; the arrangement con- 
venient, and the rooms pleasant and conducive to study and

given direction and force to the enthusiasm for debating which has 
prevailed in the past six years. There are frequenl inter-society 
contests, which give valuable training in the art of debate and 
prepare contestants for the intercollegiate contests in which the 
University has been most successful. The societies for special 
culture, the Elisha Mitchell Scientific Society, the Philological 
Society and the Shakespeare Club, offer unusual facilities for original 
research and study. Meetings are held monthly, and papers are 
read and discussed. Students are encouraged to attend and to 
contribute to the programs and discussions. The North Carolina 
Historical Society is located at the University. Its work is open 
to all students and gives access to valuable historical material. 

Campus The University campus contains forty-eight 

Building's acres of land, affording ample ground for build- 
Th e ancient oaks ings and for all sorts of athletic sports. There are, 
roofcfbeneauT contiguous to the campus, five hundred acres of 

etgermJderrthie ; forest land, which is partly laid off into walks and 
sfand^witnS^F drives. The University has fifteen buildings, 
ha! Sfsles^on to° h which afford ample room for lecture halls, labora- 
enforce. tories and dormitories. Three of these buildings 

are large and new structures, thoroughly modern in style. The 
Carr Building, the gift of General J. S. Carr, of Durham, affords 
accommodation to eighty students, with every modern convenience. 
The Alumni Building is one of the finest buildings in this State. 
It is used for offices of administration and for lecture rooms. The 
Mary Ann Smith Building contains nearly forty rooms for students. 
All dormitories, lecture-rooms and laboratories are heated by steam 
and lighted by electricity.

Degrees In the Acadamic Department instruction is 

Diverse courses _ offered in three general courses of study leading 
leges of election. to the f ollowing degrees : Bachelor of Arts, 
Bachelor of Philosophy and Bachelor of Science. 
Four years are usually required for the completion of one of these 
general courses. They furnish a broad, secure foundation of liberal 
culture, together with opportunities for specialization in single 
branches. The principle of election, in a conservative and salutary 


form, is recognized in the arrangement of bhesi courses. The 
studies of the first year are fixed. During the Sophomore year 
the work is arranged in groups, insuring study in each department 
of knowledge ■'-linguistic, literary and scientific; but election is 
allowed within each group. The work of the Junior and Senior 
years is almost exclusively elective, and each student may select 
such studies as will be of special use to him in his chosen profession 
or business. 

There are also short courses for the benefit of young men of 
limited means, limited preparation or limited time, who desire 
speedy preparation for law, business, teaching, medicine, jour- 
nalism or agriculture. These courses may be arranged to suit the 
individual tastes and necessities of students. For special reasons 
the student may devote his entire time to one subject, as chemistry, 
or language and literature, or history and law. 

Require- The subjects and examinations required for 

merits for entrance into the University depend upon the 
course of study to be pursued. Candidates for 
admission S shpuid admission to the courses leading to degrees must 
o^th^fora^ ^ 63 satisfy the following requirements: 
Unhws?ty. y the For all candidates for entrance: 

English — -Rhetoric and Composition upon sub- 
jects chosen from the list of books announced in the catalogue. 

Mathematics — Arithmetic; a good school Algebra through Pro- 
gression and Logarithms; College Algebra to Quadratic Equations; 
three books of Plane Geometry. 

History — Either the histories of Greece, Rome and the United 
States, or of the United States and England. 

The following additional requirements depend upon the course 
of study chosen. 

1. The Classical Course. 

Latin — Caesar (two books); Virgil (six books); Cicero (four 
orations) ; Composition. 

Greek — Anabasis (three books); Composition. 

2. The Philosophical Course. 

The requirement in Latin, or in Greek, and in addition the 
equivalent of one year's work in Physics or in a Modern Language. 

3. The Scientific Course. 

The equivalent of one year's work each in Physics and in a 
Modern Language. 


In general the University accepts, without examination, students 
who present certificates on the blank form provided for the purpose, 
signed by the principal of an approved school. But the right is 
reserved to examine such students when necessary in the opinion 
of the Faculty. 

No advanced standing may be granted for work clone at institu- 
tions below collegiate standing except after a satisfactory examina- 

Necessary The dues payable at the beginning of each of 

expenses ^ ^ wo terms are as follows: 

Ses^almall Tuition (Academic) $30.00

Medical and Infirmary fee 3.00 

Gymnasium fee 1.25 

Library fee 2.00 

.$41 25 

The sum of $2 must be deposited as security for damage to

Pecuniary The income of certain gifts to the University 
Ai< * affords one hundred and seven scholarships for 

students 1 aided d b red meritorious students of slender means. There is, 
IhTs w^thfn^went a ^ S0 ' ^ e Deems Fund, which provides loans for 
y ear3 - the very needy who show unusual merit. 

The number of scholarships and loans is limited, 
but they are given, without reference to county or State lines, to 
students^of talent, character and financial need. These facts must 
be established by testimonials. All applications for scholarships 
and loans must be filed in the President's office before August 15th. 
The former State law giving a scholarship to each county was 
repealed some years ago. 

Free Free tuition is given in the Academic Depart-

The first two years of instruction arc given at the seat of the 
University, at Chapel Hill, to avoid duplication of expensive labora- 
tory equipment, and to secure all the advantages of the Academic 
courses in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, etc. This department is 
under the charge of Dr. R. H. Whitehead, Dean. 

Methods of The course includes Chemistry, Biology, His- 
I instruction tology, Physics, Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, 
Minor Surgery, Materia Medica and Toxicology. 
Close contact with the instructors guarantees thorough work. The 
two years of instruction given here are accepted by medical colleges 
of high standing as equivalent to the first two years of their course. 
The Medical Department has laboratories of Pathology and Bac- 
teriology supplied with modern apparatus for experimental and 
lecture work; also a dissecting hall for an extensive study of prac- 
tical anatomy. The laboratories of Chemistry and Biology are also 
open to medical students. Excellent equipment is provided for the 
study of these branches. 

Courses The work in this department covers two years 

It is divided as follows: 

First Year. Physics, Chemistry, Histology, Anatomy, Physi- 
ology, Biology. 

Second Year. Chemistry (laboratory), Toxicology, Physiolog- 
ical Chemistry, Anatomy, Bacteriology, Physiology, Pathology, 
Materia Medica, Minor Surgery. Certain of these studies are

large equipmenl of the University, fine library, shady campus, and 

healthy location, make it an ideal place for holding such a school. 

Faculty The Faculty for the coming summer numbers 

more than twenty instructors and a dozen special 
lecturers. A number of the most prominent and successful teachers 
from all parts of the United States have been secured. An appro- 
priation three times as large as 
usual has made it possible to 
gather a larger and stronger 
faculty than ever before. 

Courses Instruction

in all subjects taught in the 
common schools of the State, 
and in such higher branches as 
are most needed for the im- 
provement of the teachers. 
There will also be courses in 
methods and school manage- 
ment given by experts and 
specialists. Certificates will be 
given to all those who remain 
to the end of the term in at- 
tendance upon three or more

General Items 

Religious The University, as a State institution, is non- 

Interests denominational. Though controlled by no special 
sect, it recognizes religion and morality as the 
basis of character. The spirit of its instruction and college life is 
broad and sympathetic, but essentially conservative, devout, 
Christian. The religious influences in the University are manifold, 

active and well- 
directed. Morning 
prayers are held 
daily in Gerrard 
Hall. Attendance is 
required. Each 
month, also, a ser- 
mon is delivered 
by one of the Uni- 
versity preachers. 
There are special 
courses of instruct- 
ion in the English 
Bible, and lectures 
on Bible History are 
delivered each Sun- 

NEAR THE MILL day moming in Q er . 

rard Hall. The Young Men's Christian Association meets four 
times each week, and assists in Bible study and Sunday school 
work in the town and county. 

Dicipline The University endeavors to make young men 

manly and self-reliant, and develop character by 
educating the conscience. The discipline of the institution is ad- 
ministered upon a basis of honor and manhood in its students. 
Courtesy and consideration prevail in all relations, and the friction 
of the college life begets mutual regard, sympathy and respect

Labor and 
Self Help 

"Here honorable 
labor, even rough 
labor of the hands, 
is glorified by high 

It is confidently believed that no institution 
offers wider opportunities for self-help to meritor- 
ious students of slender means. The desire is that 
no worthy boy, however poor, shall ever be turned 
away for lack of means. 
There are a number of ways in which a young 
man can pay in part or in whole his expenses while a student at 
the University. Between one-fourth and one-third of the students 
at the University 
are thus helping 
themselves. The 
following are some 
of the forms of em- 
ployment available : 
Teachers, printers, 
stenographers, type- 
writers, bookkeep- 
ers, tellers or moni- 
tors, waiters, wood 
sawyers, janitors, 
clerks, clothes pres- 
sers, machinists, 
agents for clothing, 
books, athletic sup- 
plies, etc. Work of 
this kind is rarely in the gift of the University authorities. 
Bright young men who have a will to help themselves generally 
find the way. 


Care of 


The health of the students is the special charge 
of the Medical Department of the University. On 
payment of a small medical fee all students receive 
the careful attention of the physician, Dr. Richard 
Henry Whitehead. They are, by this arrange- 
ment, relieved of the possible expense of large 
medical bills in case of prolonged illness, and parents may rest 
assured that their sons will have the best medical advice if they

furnished, containing improved equipment for the care of the sick. 
A competent nurse is in attendance in case of severe illness. 

Athletics The University has excellent facilities for physic- 

aI * d al training. The gymnasium, Memorial Hall, is 

ysic a equipped with modern appliances for exercise, and 

is under the supervision of an experienced director. 
Attendance at the gymnasium is required daily of all students 
except Seniors. 

The athletic interests are controlled by the students, with the 
advice and supervision of the faculty. The baseball teams com- 
pete successfully with those of the largest colleges of the country, 
and in football and track athletics the University is one of the 
leaders among Southern colleges.

Cost to The University receives from the State this year 

the State an appropriation of $37,500. The appropriation, 
if collected per capita, would amount to about 2 
cents per annum to each inhabitant; but the tax is paid entirely by 
property, and the mass of the people in the State really contribute 
little or nothing to its support. A man who pays only a poll tax 
contributes nothing. 
A man listed at 
$100 pays less than 
1 cent annually to 
the regular appro- 
priation, at $500 
less than 5 cents, at 
$1000 less than 10 
cents, at $5000 less 
than 50 cents. The 
average taxpayer is 
listed at less than 
$500, and, therefore 
pays less than 5 
cents. About four 
fifths of the taxpay- 
ers pay less than 10 
cents a year for an appropriation of $37,500, for the support of 
the University. 

The tax for the University does not come from the public school 
fund. It is a tax on property alone, and its advantages accrue to 
the sons of the poor. It is a tax of the property-holders for the 
benefit of themselves, their neighbors and the State. It is an 
application of Christianity to government. 



The The University is the logical head of the entire 

University svs tem of public educational institutions. This is 

_. __-. the American idea, and every State in the Union 


Schools nas a University at the head of its school system. 

The University of North Carolina has always been 
foremost in fostering and developing the schools. For the last 
twenty years forty per cent of each graduating class has gone into 
the school service. There is a Department of Pedagogy for the 
training of teachers and a Summer School for those who are already 
teaching and who are unable to attend its regular sessions. Thus 
a great many teachers have been fitted for work in the secondary 
schools. The wider interest in education during the past year has 
increased the demand for teachers in the lower public schools. To 
supply this demand it will be necessary to add a distinct Normal 
Department to the University, with special teachers for the subjects 
required in the public schools. This will be done as soon as the 
necessary funds are provided.
